When Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez went looking for books about Latinxs who served in World War II, she couldn’t find any. She decided not only to write her own, but also to produce one of the most important audiovisual archives dedicated to Latinx veterans, activists and community leaders across the country, spanning three wars and decades of advocacy.
Join ASU’s Office for Veteran and Military Academic Engagement for a Zoom webinar with renowned scholar and founding director of the Voces Oral History Center, Dr. Maggie Rivas Rodriguez, of the University of Texas at Austin, who will discuss her two decades of work rescuing stories of Latinx veterans from World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

Join ASU’s College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at the Polytechnic campus for the yearly Humanities Dialogues! Each dialogue features two scholars who share recent research or work-in-progress and invite discussion. The first event took place on September 24th, but there are still two events to come, including one on October 21st and one on November 17th. Upcoming topics for these talks include embracing Irish identity, transnational feminism, and using your body to learn linguistic ideologies!
